Arequipa, Peru

The University of Mary has partnered with the Universidad Católica San Pablo in Arequipa, Peru, to offer students an opportunity to study and serve for a full semester in South America. Mary students live with host families for their semester of study, and all courses are taught in English, with courses including Art, Philosophy (Ethics), Theology, and Spanish. Students will also have the opportunity to meet and study with other international students at the Universidad San Pablo. The program also serves the impoverished, including an outreach to the poorest of the poor in the remote town of Ayaviri. Students are able to experience the culture and wonders of Peru, to include an excursion to Machu Picchu, one of the “new” seven wonders of the world! In addition to the semester long program, the University of Mary offers a medical mission trip for physical therapy doctoral students during the spring semester, working with “Corpus et Vita” in Lima.
